Lucy Peterson meets Gov. DeWine for a holiday party

Senior Lucy Peterson recently had the privilege of attending the Governor’s Holiday Party, an enchanting event that brought together friends from the Downs Syndrome Association of Ohio (DSACO) and offered a myriad of festive delights. Lucy not only savored the camaraderie but also immersed herself in the holiday spirit through various activities.

One of the highlights of Lucy’s evening was the opportunity to watch the Cleveland Browns football game with her friends. “I really enjoyed watching them play on the TV with all of my friends,” Lucy exclaimed, capturing the excitement of cheering on her favorite team amidst the holiday festivities.

The Governor’s residence was adorned with exquisite holiday decorations, featuring four distinct Christmas trees, each with its own unique theme. Lucy’s personal favorite was the Nutcracker-themed tree, a dazzling display of creativity and festive spirit that added an extra layer of magic to the celebration.

During the event, Lucy had a special moment to connect with Governor DeWine himself. Curious about his holiday preferences, she asked him about his favorite Christmas song. The Governor graciously responded, revealing that “The Christmas Song” held a special place in his heart. This exchange highlighted the warm and inclusive atmosphere of the gathering, where everyone, regardless of background, came together to share in the joy of the season.
